About Kirkby Stephen Grammar School

Kirkby Stephen Grammar School is a fully comprehensive school, which serves a wide catchment area of 400 square miles and provides education for approx. 350 pupils between 11 and 19. There are 50 students in the current Sixth Form. The school has, on average, one pupil per square mile of catchment area and draws many pupils from small villages and isolated farms. Having such attractively small numbers enables us to provide for our students in a personalised way, within the family ethos we enjoy.

In the centre of the Upper Eden Valley, Kirkby Stephen is a thriving market town of some 2,500 inhabitants. It lies amidst some of the most splendid scenery in the North of England. Despite its sparse population and relative isolation, Kirkby Stephen has easy access to the M6 and A1 via the A66. This gives simple, quick and convenient routes to the Lake District and the rest of the country. Kirkby Stephen also lies on the Settle-Carlisle line – one of the most spectacular rail journeys in the world.
